The two talk about how separated the trio of Gunnar Henderson (Orioles), Corbin Carroll (D-backs) and Jackson Chourio (Brewers) are from the prospects behind them, and get into a conversation about the power potential of Carroll. After that, the two talk about which prospects would be next up before digging into an ultra-talented and exciting group of shortstops at the top of the list.

How would both writers line up a group that includes Elly De La Cruz (Reds), Marcelo Mayer (Red Sox), Jordan Lawlar (D-backs), Anthony Volpe (Yankees) and Jackson Holliday (Orioles)? After talking through those players, the two get into a conversation about why elite shortstop prospects come from the high school ranks, but why the 2023 draft class could change that a bit for next year—thanks to players like Jacob Gonzalez (Mississippi) and Jacob Wilson (Grand Canyon).

Finally, the duo breaks down some players they are either higher or lower on than the consensus BA top 100 list. Players include: Tink Hence (Cardinals), Michael Busch (Dodgers), Dylan Lesko (Padres), Ceddanne Rafaela (Red Sox), Luis Ortiz (Pirates), Matthew Liberatore (Cardinals) and Adael Amador (Rockies), among others.
